    This:



    Nicely tuneful and melodic, if you like chilled-out folky pop, and beautifully recorded

    Check out the track: 'One More for the Road', in particular.

    Maco.

    Second listen in a few days, forgotten how good this one was, not to everyones liking but some well constructed Prog. rock. Based on Autobiography of a Yogi (1946) by Paramahansa Yogananda that describes four bodies of Hindu texts, collectively named the shastras. Wakeman left the group after the live tour of as he did not like aspect of the musical direction the band was going, although he has said that there were some beautiful melodies in it and moments if greatness. The album was a commercial success, becoming the first UK album to qualify for gold certification based on pre-orders alone. It topped the UK Album Chart for two weeks and reached number 6 in the US for 500,000 copies sold. It has been re-issued at least twice.

    If you have never heard it give it a go, each side is quite different, reflecting the Shastra. IMO opinion it may take 2 or 3 listens to gel.

    Yes are a band which somehow passed us by, but I will give this one a go later. Monday is the night that Mrs. Pony goes to the weighbridge at Slimming World, and I use those evenings to "go loud"

    I think vinyl is essential for stuff like this, especially when it uses Roger Dean's fabulous artwork.
    Excuse me, are you the Judean People's Front?

    Some more classic Prog. One of my favourites, I heard for the first time live when Genesis performed at the Southampton Gaumont when I was 16, spectacular and they performed Foxtrot in its entirety. Those were the days!

    You might want to try,



    I believe many consider this to be one of their best although I do like their earlier stuff , Time And A Word, Fragile and Close To The Edge.

    The Steve Wilson remix/remaster box set sounds jaw-droppingly great.
